Waikato Secondary Schools rugby competition structures were reviewed in 2018 to develop new competition structure to encourage growth and development in our Co-educational schools  with a  focus on trying to achieve the most desirable 1st XV competition for all, particularly encouraging opportunity for smaller or rural schools.

The National School Rugby qualification for the NZSS top four competition is based upon franchise region of the Chiefs to establish the top BoysCo-Ed and Girls team to represent the greater region after play-offs against the other Provincial union teams after regional elimination matches in the Chiefs region

A number of schools compete in external competitions
Hamilton Boys High School – Super 8 Competition
St Pauls’ Collegiate, St Johns’ College, St Peters’ School – Central North Island Competition
